Citrus Flatid Planthopper(Metcalfa pruinosa)

I saw these large planthoppers hanging out on the parsnip a couple of weeks ago; despite their name they are not too picky about their food. It is quite cute how they like to feed together in small groups all on the same stem. They were a bit camera shy and scuttled around the stem to avoid their picture being taken, but they didn't hop away and eventually let me take their pictures.
